Polaroid | Land
We drove out to Arizona on Saturday and stayed till Tuesday morning. I caught the plague from my mom’s surprise visit and was sick the whole trip. I almost contemplated staying back a day and resting, but forced myself to go anyway, which was the right choice. One of the best vacations I’ve ever had! We visited a meteor crater, seen volcanic fields out in the middle of nowhere, stopped at the Grand Canyon, and watched the solar eclipse in Sedona! I love driving out to the desert, there’s just something so peaceful and mysterious about it. I love the abandoned buildings and cars, and that borderline creepy feeling you get while walking around to photograph an object in some strange town. Wind tying your hair in knots around your face, while a thin, blond haired woman is staring at you from across the way, smoking a cigarette in a Janis Joplin t-shirt cut off at the sleeves. I’ve been trying to focus more on what I want a photograph to look like lately, rather than letting my mind wander off into paranoid-land.
I dropped off a few rolls tonight, so hopefully I’ll have more photos to show you soon.
You can see more of the instagram photos here.
Lately: Photo 1- One of my favorite spots to sit, relax and watch plane watch. 2- Ron at the park today. The weather was perfect and reminded me of Summer. 3- A rainy morning on the window sill 4- The ocean at sunset, a few weeks ago.
Life has been busy again and I haven’t taken many personal photos over the past month. I do have a few projects coming up, so I’m definitely excited for that.
Listening to this song a lot: No no, I can’t help you.
Ron | Polaroid
Life has been crazy lately. My sister visited for a week and then somehow overnight, everything piled up and exploded onto my desk. If I owe you an email, I’m really sorry, I’m trying to get to everything this weekend.
I finally booked my hotel in Portland. Aug 31 – Sept 6! So excited! Can’t wait to be in the forest shooting Ashley’s wedding and exploring somewhere new.
I was googling around for a song (can’t remember which one) and stumbled onto this Mirah remix. At first I thought it sounded a bit off, but now I love it and can’t stop playing it.
Polaroid | 600 | Quiet days.
I feel like it’s been forever since i’ve updated. I’ve been busy and really, just taking the worst photos imaginable. I guess I’m in one of those phases again. Shot off a bunch of Polaroids and wasted them allll. Well, all except for this lone grapefruit. The weird thing is, I feel really inspired but when I take a photo, it comes out all wrong. I think I need to take a break. Relax. Enjoy. Read a book. Clear my mind a little.
On a happier note: This weekend is July 4th! Fireworks, food, fun! Do you have anything planned? I’m so excited to go out and enjoy the warm pretty weather.
Polaroid SX-70 | 600 Film (I’m running out) | Sunday’s Party
This weekend was a really good one. It was the first time in a really long time, Ron and I got to spend time together with NO plans. We ended up having lunch at a little deli and plane watching (while drinking mojitos) by the airport on Saturday. These Polaroids are from our mini party on Sunday. We made tacos and I made fresh guacamole. The avocados weren’t so soft though, I miss the one’s we’d have in Hawai’i! Soft and buttery…Mmm!
I took some film, finally. Will try and develop soon.
Hope everyone had a good weekend as well.
Polaroid SX-70 600 Film | Today
It’s finally Friday!
I had a good morning. Met with Karleen for coffee and brunch and then took a walk alone in the sun. The weather is really nice today– 80′s with a nice breeze. Hope this warmth keeps up for the weekend!
Still not sure what’s in store for Saturday or Sunday, but I do know we’re making tacos on one of those nights. And shooting some film.
Listening to the cardigans on repeat, today.
Have a good weekend! : )

Have a good weekend, everyone.
Photos from our drive down to the ocean.
Just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a Happy New Year. I have a few rolls of film sitting in my bag, waiting to be developed. One is a black and white roll that has been sitting in my Minolta for over a year, and the other is from my old Holga, the one I got over 5 years ago (without a flashh)! Ron also took a camera and some film, so I’m excited to see what he gets as well.
Have a good and safe night! I’ll hopefully be back here sometime soon.
